Accidents and Injuries on Vacation

Accidents and Injuries on Vacation

Whether you are planning a road trip to see family over the holidays, taking a quick weekend getaway, or looking forward to a big spring break vacation, it is always possible for your good time to be disrupted by a serious accident and injuries. It is important to know the risks of vacation-related accidents, as well as what to do if an injury occurs.

Vehicle Accidents

If you are driving to your destination, there is always the chance of a crash happening. Road trips often result in distracted or fatigued driving, and it can also increase your accident risk if you are driving in an area with which you are not very familiar. Plan ahead, leave plenty of time to get to your destination, rest when you need to, and prevent distractions whenever possible.

Hotel and Resort Accidents

The risks do not end once you reach your hotel or resort. Many people sustain injuries in these establishments on a regular basis. Some common hotel and resort accidents include:

  • Swimming pool and spa accidents
  • Fitness room accidents
  • Slip and falls
  • Shuttle crashes
  • Accidents involving resort-sponsored activities
  • Watersports accidents
  • Assaults due to inadequate security

These can all happen when you least expect it, and the resulting injuries can be serious.

Miscellaneous Accidents

Any accidents that can happen in your hometown can also happen in another town or city. These include:

  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Scooter accidents
  • Drunk driving accidents
  • Falls
  • Food poisoning
  • Assaults
